president obama says. voters are going to make up their mind on his four years of his record and what mitt romney eastern is. and the romney campaign, i think, falls in the trap of becoming sort of a speech creator of obama, you know? people like us should do that, it's perfectly appropriate, but as a political matter, people are going to make up their mind on the policies. obama speaks pretty well as a president, he makes some mistakes, other presidents have made plenty of mistakes. the liberals spent eight years thinking, hey, ronald reagan said something kind of wacky, that'll destroy his presidency, it didn't. my advice to the romney campaign, we should write blogposts and say, hey, can you believe obama said that? the romney campaign needs to criticize president obama's policies and say what they would do instead. jon: so you're saying that they need to be more forward looking instead of looking in the rearview mirror every week? >> yes. i think if you look at the polls in detail, if you look at the inside, some of the questions, people aren't happy with the way the country is, but th
worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking about the size and shape of government and, as you heard him doing very crisply there, we can't afford four more years, is the new romney message. and we can't -- america won't last through a trajectory of more spending, more debt, more taxes. megyn: all right. so he's going to get sharper in his tone, in his cont
voters aren't enthusiastic enough about president obama to go to the polls. he thinks voters are much more revved up about mitt romney. what do you think? >> certainly in virginia where there's a significant african-american population, it remains very much engaged. and one of the things that the obama campaign has been doing this year as it did in '08 is trying to be as visible as possible in areas where there are large numbers of african-americans though there is still a strong republican tendency. and the point of that exercise is to run as closely to romney in areas of the state where he should do exceptionally well as possible. >> jeff shapiro, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >>> there is a reason why virginia is a battle ground state. it's close race. but the president is inching forward. this is the average of recent polls. as of last week, more likely voters in virginia would choose president obama 50% to 44%. a new softer mitt romney is emerging on the campaign trail because of these numbers in part. maybe compassionate conservatism is back. al
those key issues right now are trending towards president obama in the voters' minds and people getting comfortable with the idea of a second term. >> gretchen: 40 days and counting and three debates. thanks. have a great day. >> you too. >> gretchen: police department going to the dogs. there is only one officer left. it's a police dog. a new way to celebrate your child's birthday. the man behind alligator pool parties here next i knew it'd be tough on our retirement savings, especially in this economy. but with three kids, being home more really helped. man: so we went to fidelity. we talked about where we were and what we could do. we changed our plan and did something about our economy. now we know where to go for help if things change again. call or come in today to take control of your personal economy. get free one-on-one help from america's retirement leader. for the spender who needs a little help saving. for adding "& sons." for the dreamer, planning an early escape. for the mother of the bride. for whoever you are, for whatever you're trying to achieve, pnc has technology, gu
of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
. the obama campaign has spent months and millions trying to convince voters that mitt romney is unethical. >> he won't release his tax returns before 2010. >> unprepared. >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. >> unattached to reality. >> my thinking is maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> with all those alleged problems, surely he has no chance of prevailing against president obama in the debates, right? well, not according to the obama campaign. >> mitt romney i think has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> reporter: the romney team says president obama is weak on foreign policy. >> what we do not see is steady consistent american leadership. >> reporter: weak on the economy. >> he's over his head. and he's swimming in the wrong direction. >> reporter: and just plain weak overall. >> the president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. >> reporter: with all those weaknesses, surely he would be easy to beat in a debate, right? oh, no. not according to mitt romney. >> he's the president
is obama taking the lead for the first time in who voters trust going forward. >> and he doesn't have a message that is consistent. because in ohio, he confused his tax message. so if he is going to offer tax ve s amount of money because i'm going to eliminate deductions, but president obama actually didn't inease your taxes, which was a misstatement of his past -- in the last 48 hours, he has completely muddled his taxmessage, and you c dot rliann against an incumbent president who's popular. >> the romney people thought that this was going to be a referendum on barack oma and that they wouldn't have to put forward new ideas. here we have a situation where the president hasn't told us anything about what he's going to do in the second term. heet awit. you know, i had this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exact what barack obama'soal i or neew we >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that 've ended up, because both candidates

.romney instead of saying here is my plan, i have been running six years. lou: if that is true the voters want specificity. why would they not what performance and the plan? >> but we don't have confidence in obama but less paular of governor romney. >> basically this president who ha has blamed his policy on hi failures now has a wonderful advantage to run against an an opponent he can blame is that correct? >> the thing that amazes meng ta i look at the polls. the country wants change. d quitg about the president and talk about himself. lou: okay, talking about himself. we will find out how well he debates. is that sufficient? >> it's not a quick fix. he needs specifics and ideas and something that you can dwell on going forward that gives a credible and clear alternative. lou: we both understand, we've known each other for some time. i have a very hard time reaching that chasm. at the idea that a president would not be responsible for his record, but a challenger would be for this recommendation. >> is a it is a peculiar election. i think what should have been a slamdunk, we are failing mis
. this is an oxymoron, but they will be lovingly booed as well. >> and both president obama and mitt romney are campaigning in the battleground state of virginia today after courting voters in ohio wednesday. a new nationwide gallup poll of registered voters shows the president leading romney 50-44%. jan crawford caught up with romney wednesday as he faced new pressure from republicans to get tougher. >> good morning. romney really has taken some hits in the polls, and conservatives, his supporters, are really getting anxious. they're starting to get nervous that time is running out. i had a chance to talk to him yesterday before a big rally in ohio. and i picked up none of that from romney, no kind of anxiety, no nervousness. he looked very measured like someone who is going to stay the course, stay on message. he talked a lot about the debate, and that's a chance for the american people to kind of see his message and also for him to show what he says is some false attacks by the president. he had some pretty harsh words for the president, too, and his campaign. take a listen to that. >> t
political communicators in modern history." >>> two more battleground states leaning towards obama. according to the latest cnn polls. in nevada likely voters favor the president by three points over mitt romney, 49% to 46%. meantime, in virginia, the president has an even wider lead, 49% to 44%. >> sledgehammer smash and grab. the fbi has released dramatic video of suspects who robbed a saks fifth avenue store. investigators say he ran in the store an hour before closing time and used sledge hammers to destroy a display case and $5,000 reward for these suspects. >>> all clear after a bomb scare caused a brief evacuation of a terminal. they found a grenade-like item inside the luggage of an incoming passenger. the passenger said it was inert but terminal four was evacuated just in case. it turned out to be a paperweight and the terminal was re-opened for business. >>> a couple weeks ago we told you about a renoir painting that a virginia woman bought for $7. a "washington post" reporter said it was stolen from a baltimore museum way back in 1951. now the painting, this was supposed

as president obama is going to give a speech and a lot to testify for what he will say at the u.n. general assembly today. >> had will this kind of speech, though,s are mate with voters out there? it may resonate with the audience. will it resonate with voters? i'm sure that's on governor romney's mind, too. >> sure. well, you know, one of the things i think you are going to see him doing today is trying to pivot this debate about foreign policy back to jobs and trade and opportunity. i think he will make the argument that when we -- when our aid program should be built towards developing free market partners around the world, helping -- nations and embrace the free market and embrace trade. that in the long run helps american prosperity and creates jobs here at home. the man who is hosting him, president clinton, when he came into office, one of the first things bill clinton did was join with republicans to pass the north american free trade agreement over the objections of democrats. he worked with -- got a majority of republicans and minority of democrats in a coal toygs pass that p pre
